Upcounty Community Resources, Inc. (UCR) is a private, non-profit organization that believes we are enriched by all persons in our community. We promote the full inclusion of persons with developmental differences into every aspect of community life through our social events and therapeutically based programs.
Our programs and events take place at various locations in upper Montgomery County. UCR programs are facilitated by professionals, and staffed by trained and experienced UCR staff. Volunteers like YOU make a difference by supporting UCR members, staff, and professionals at programs and events.
In addition to these volunteer opportunities UCR offers one Professional Internship, and two Community Internships. The Professional Internship is tailored for a High School Junior or Senior who is interested in working with people with developmental differences, and learning about organization management.
